Sixth-grade students showed up at school at 6 o'clock in the morning to see the super blue blood moon eclipse. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy to see the eclipse. We enjoyed the donuts, the hot chocolate and the good company.

February Newsletter

Sierra Bonita Elementary News - Fri, 02/02/2018 - 3:01pm
(more pictures available)

Hello Parents, 

Welcome to February!  I can’t believe that we are this far into the school year.  With spring on its way in 6 weeks, hopefully in 6 weeks, we anticipate many more great things happening here at Sierra Bonita.  I am impressed with the great students we have in our school and the great support they get from each of you!  Thanks for all you do!


SEP Conferences

Our SEP conferences will be held on March 1st.  These will be student led conferences so there will be no sign-ups for this conference.  We recommend that those whose last name that starts with A-L to come any time from 3:30-5:30 and M-Z to come any time between 6-8.  We understand that this time does not work for everyone so if you need to come to the other session that is fine.  We are just trying to prevent too much congestion.  Teachers will be eating dinner from 5:30-6.  

Lost and Found Items:  We have several items in our lost and found back by the lunchroom.  Please have your students take a moment to look for their lost items.  You are welcome to come in and look for items as well that are your childs’.  If items continue to increase and become too many, we will donate these items to Tabitha’s Way.

PTA News:

Box Tops week will be February 5th-9th.  Please bring in any Box Tops you may have to your classroom teacher.  Prizes will be awarded to the class with the most Box tops brought in. 

Next PTA Meeting:  February 14th at 9:15 am. 

School Community Council

Our next SCC meeting will be on February 21st at 11:40. 

We are in the process of reviewing our goals for next year and making needed changes to help our students succeed. 

Pick-Up Zone & Parking

We appreciate the efforts of all parents and staff members in providing for the safety of students in our drop-off and pick up zones. Please help us to ensure that all students are accompanied by an adult when crossing through the pick-up zone.  Also, thank you for reserving our handicapped parking spaces for those who have need for these parking stalls. We remind you to please park in a parking stall if you need to leave your vehicles to come inside the school.  This allows the flow of the drop-off and pick-up areas to be maintained and keeps vehicles moving forward and not needing to back up!  We have great appreciation for everyone’s efforts to increase safety in our parking lots and drop off and pick-up zones before and after school.  Winter weather creates a greater need for caution and patience as we come to and from school! 

Note: By law, bus zones cannot be used as drop off and pick up zones even if there are no buses present!


School Checkout Procedures

Please follow the following procedures when you need to check a student out from school before the end-of-school bell rings.  First, share with an office secretary that an early checkout is necessary, second, fill out information and sign name on the checkout sheet located in the office area, and third, wait in the office area until your student arrives in the office. Thank you.


Students Walking, Riding Bicycles/Scooters & Crosswalks

We have many students who are walking and riding bicycles/scooters to school each day. We have provided training for students to use sidewalks and to follow the instructions of adult supervisors and our crossing guards. We have instructed students to use the crosswalk in front of the school when crossing 1800 East. Faculty members will serve as crossing guards at this crosswalk. We ask that all parents please instruct their children on these and other safety measures to better ensure that students safely make their way to and from school each day.


Spirit Day

We have school spirit at Sierra Bonita, and have designated each Friday as our School Spirit Day. We have nice school shirts and encourage children to wear their school shirts (this year’s and past years’ shirts) or school colors (blue and maroon) on Fridays.  We have a lot to be proud of at Sierra Bonita and want to do all we can to build school pride.


Extracurricular Activities:

Look for information about our Spring robotics classes coming home soon.

Park's 2018 Teacher of the Year

Park Elementary News - Fri, 02/02/2018 - 2:59pm

Last week, Park staff nominated and then voted on a Park Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year. The Teacher of the Year for Park is Ms. Carrie Dunn. Here are what a few of her colleagues said about her:

“She is amazing. She puts so much time and effort to understand her students and to meet their needs. She is great to work with. She has a positive word for everyone. She is always willing to help. She is always trying to learn more and improve her skills.”

“She is always going above and  beyond the expectation of a teacher. She is involved in multiple ways to help our school and faculty. She does whatever anyone needs and always smiles about it.”

“She has an amazingly organized classroom and creative ideas. My daughter saw her snowman Leader in Me done by her students in the hall and was impressed. She comes early and even comes in on weekends, etc. She has a radiant smile on her face and shows true patience for her students.”

Park wouldn’t be as amazing as it is with Ms. Dunn! We are so lucky that we get to call her a Park Panther. This award is very much deserved.
Congratulations Ms. Dunn!

February Mayor Award

Payson Junior High School News - Fri, 02/02/2018 - 2:45pm

The recipient of the Mayor Award for February is PJHS student Bryson Jensen. Bryson was selected for this award because of his positivity, friendliness, and determination. Here's what some of Bryson's teachers have to say about him: 

Bryson is in my English class.  He is such a good student.  He does his work, stays on task, and is a good friend to his classmates.  He is also quite the artist.  For his Martin Luther King Junior project, he drew a picture on a poster board of MLK for the wall. He is a great guy. I am so happy I get to teach him. – Ms. DeGraffenried

Bryson has been in my social studies classes the last two years and also on my wrestling team. I have seen him work through some very tough situations and succeed. He has learned to overcome discouragement by keeping a positive attitude. Bryson is friendly and works well with others. I wholeheartedly recommend Bryson for this award. - Mr. Ward

Bryson is determined to always do his best.  He works hard to finish his work and do it to the best of his ability. – Mr. Houston

Bryson is good at asking for help when he needs it. He works very hard to keep up his grades. He is also great at art. I love to see the beautiful pictures he creates. He is always polite to teachers and other students. – Mrs. Sepos

Congratulations, Bryson! Thank you for being an example to all of us here at PJHS.

We Learn: 6th Grade Engineering Fair

Cherry Creek Elementary News - Fri, 02/02/2018 - 11:15am

The first ever 6th grade Engineering Fair was held today, and students were interviewed and judged by volunteer engineers! In years past, 6th graders would participate in the Science Fair to learn about the scientific method. Since a change in the core curriculum this year, students now learn science with a focus on engineering and problem solving. The requirements were simple: think of a problem you face in daily living, and build a product that will help with that problem. They documented their materials, processes, and trials to find out if their product was effective. What they came up with was impressive to see!
